We love Thai Basil Beef (Pad Gra Prow) in our house but sometimes we can’t justify the price of quality beef. When that happens, we reach for meaty, comforting mushrooms instead. They offer the same savory flavour that beef does but because they absorb the flavour of whatever you’re cooking them with, they tend to soak up the rich, salty sauce more than beef does. Each little bite-sized chunk of mushroom packs HUGE umami flavour so you won’t miss your meat protein here. Serve with jasmine rice or your favourite stir fried vegetables.
